    Meanwhile, with Tyrion, it isn't about being poor. The money is the money and he knows he has it so he uses it. But more than that, he knows what he's capable of and that people keep ****ting on him. He can be someone great. He can make a difference. And moreover, he has a right. He SHOULD be the heir to Casterly Rock. He made an excellent Hand. He's a strategist and capable of being a politician. But any time he's had any standing, he's done the job and been pushed aside in the end by someone who takes the credit. He's said it to Vaerys: he's good at the game and he likes it. So why should he run? Why go to Pentos or Volantis and become some merchant?

    As for his handicap, I think the only time he ever refers to it, when not joking about it, is when he talks to Jon Snow in season 1. And he explains that it's best to accept who he is and get on with life rather than piss and moan about it. He struggle is for respect. And of all the characters in the show, he gets less of it from other characters than practically anyone else in the series.


    I never said I disliked Tyrion, just said I didn't feel sorry for him. After what his father did to him with his first 'wife', his sister trying to kill him, and the only one who doesn't treat him with open hatred is Ser Jamie...who treats him as a curiousity. Yet he stays...for the money. He speaks of duty, when marrying Sansa, yet I think Bronn got it closer. When it comes to his family he is like a child...testing boundaries. Yet, when faced with it...he turtles, hides Shae, who he professes to love. Yet, because he is more charming than Theon, you guys write all of that off and give him a pass. Sorry, I prefer my characters more flawed, like Theon. I can relate to that more. The difference between the two is that Tyrion has been successful in his machinations whereas Theon has been painfully inept(once again, flawed, therefore I relate)

    And yes I think Tyrion saying 'and do what, be a juggler' when Shae said they could just leave is him hiding behind his handicap. It's like what? I could never leave my family because all I am is a dwarf. Which we all know isn't true. You can't think he feels that way either. It's just a crutch to stay tied to the Lannister teat and take all of their combined crap hoping against hope that some day they will respect and embrace him.

    No, Theon signed off on it, yes. But he was caught up at that point. He technically did not kill the children. You saw the look of remorse and horror when he unveiled the burned bodies. Peer pressure is a bitch.
    And have you really ever met any innocent
    kids? Thats really the only distinction and one that I think you are too hung up on. The two characters are not that different if you really think about it.

    And stop pointing out the obvious. Theon has done vomitus things. But at heart, Tyrion is a coward. One does not cancel out the other.

    Two orphans. Hundreds of warriors who would've been happy and excited to put his head on a spike and rape his sister, lover or anyone else with holes while they pillaged and burned the home of innocents.

    Yeah. Basically same thing.

    Allowing the death of two innocent orphans and perpetuating the lie after clumsily beheading the man who taught you how to fight.

    Leading an army outside the gates of a city not too long after marching out on the flank of a vanguard that was meant to be obliterated.

    Which one is the coward?
